Happy Friday!!!

Hello to all my friends, FWF friends...

I am SO GLAD that this week is coming to a close... 
I've been SO BUSY, and I feel like I'm running around without having time to breathe! 
I just have a few more things that need to get done, and THIS SUNDAY AFTERNOON... 
YES, in about 65 hours... (can you tell that I can't wait?)
it'll be MY time.

(It's been all so fun,
 but Halloween, baby shower, school volunteering, 
planning for my hubby's Christmas parties, celebrating a birthday... 
can all be SO exhausting, too!)

I'll hopefully get to craft from there, and catch up on all my friends' blogs and their latest crafts, etc...

Anyhow, I just wanted to post this card 
(you may have seen it on the Unity Stamp Company blog 
if you were curious about this week's Stamp of the Week #44 image.)

This one is totally practical - one that I'll know I'll use a lot.

It's a birthday stamp, and can't have enough of them!

Here's what I made!

I stamped the candles and stars onto separate pieces of paper, 
cut them out and paper pierced it together.
(had to add my fave jute twine as a wick, too!)

The sentiment portion was inked, and the candles part was covered up with paper before stamping :)

I cut out little stars out from big star (in both vellum and kraft paper).  
I sprayed the vellum with Mister Huey's clear Calico Mist and sprinkled some gold glitter on it. 
Both were sewn together, and backed with yellow paper for the stars.

I got to use my washi tapes and my Heidi Swapp Color Shine (Primrose) as well! 


Yeah, this card actually took A LOT of work... 
I think that I was experimenting a bit :) 
 I've never let these mists 'drop' onto my work before, and I was SOOO nervous. 
 This is a new style for me, and just had fun doing it!

So, here's the image!

Before I let you go - Unity Stamp Company is having a fabulous sale on the itty bittys
It's buy one, get another for a $1, so it's time to stock up!... 
you get a BIG adorable mitten stamp for FREE if you purchase over $30!


...huh? You have all the itty bittys you could ever want? 
Well, I know that's impossible
but if that's the case, 
take a look at the three NEW ones that just came out, too! SO CUTE!


Anyway, that's it from me today... I promise I'll craft a bit more next week! 

ALTHOUGH... as busy as I may have been...
for the SVG Cuts' fans... 
I actually did make a new design team project this week! 
So, I'm off to write it up, and to take pics! 
I have a hunch you're gonna like this one! :) 
(I did use a Unity stamp on it, too!)

Have a beautiful weekend girls! :)
